ModuSpec is delighted to announce the award of a six-figure contract for provision of rig intake and inspection services for an international oil company (IOC). The contract includes supporting our client during the inspection and acceptance phases of an ultra-deep newbuild drillship being reactivated for service to drill offshore Angola.
ModuSpec, a Vysus Group company, had previously supported the client earlier in 2021 during the selection phase to assess the drill ship’s condition and level of compliance to the IOC’s corporate policies. We will deliver a discipline specific service focusing on the reactivation and testing of the drilling, electronic control, well control and dynamic positioning systems.
Our surveyors will join the drillship in Namibia and be onboard during the transit to Angola, while our team in Aberdeen will project manage delivery in partnership with both drilling contractor and IOC to ensure efficiencies are gained during all phases and the intake process is optimised. ModuSpec has already completed a number of similar projects in West Africa during 2021, including two other projects in Angola and also in Nigeria.
Mark Watson, Operations Manager with ModuSpec, said: “We are delighted to work with our client again to intake a drill ship to Angola. We have been very active this year in West Africa, specifically with more complex projects involving the higher specification drilling units. It’s a testimony to the customised and project managed service that we provide. Clients really do see the difference with the ModuSpec approach and trust that we work to find efficiencies during the intake process and work collaboratively with all stakeholders.”
